The market quotation for titanium tetrachloride is 856.49 – 912.82 USD/ton. The cost price of titanium tetrachloride has loosened slightly, but the demand in downstream industries such as sponge titanium and pearlescent pigment is weak, leading to a chaotic market transaction price.
The mainstream quotation for first-grade civil sponge titanium in the market is around 7,457.06 – 7,603.98 USD/ton. Despite the high cost price, sponge titanium companies maintain a firm quotation.

The sponge titanium market is weakly stable.
Today’s titanium dioxide price index is 2322, 12 points lower than the previous working day.
